North Korean Dynasty of Delusion: Doves, Rainbows and Double Bread With Meat

Jason Buttrill, Head Writer/Researcher for The Glenn Beck Program, joined Glenn in studio today to discuss the quickly involving situation with North Korea and the incredulous propaganda successfully fed to the North Korean people about their leaders.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Welcome to the program. Jason Buttrill is joining us. He is my national security adviser and -- and helping me with a show that is on tonight. We're bringing the chalkboard back out for a lesson on North Korea. Not only what's possibly coming and what it means, but also the history of North Korea. And this is -- this is why Russia transformed, or the Soviet Union transformed, is because they were afraid of becoming something like North Korea is now, a very dangerous state.

JASON: And a lot of people, I think -- Kim Jong-un is basically like a punch line to most people. And they make it pretty easy. They've got some pretty hilarious stuff about the guy. You know, his body is so well in tune. He never has to use the bathroom.

GLENN: And they believe it.

JASON: They completely believe it.

GLENN: They believe he was brought in as a baby by a dove and was greeted by a double rainbow.

JASON: Right.

GLENN: I mean, they believe that.

JASON: When his father supposedly was born, a star was created in the sky. And the winter instantly turned to spring.

JEFFY: Right.

JASON: It goes beyond imagination. They actually think he's a god.

PAT: And they believe his birth is celebrated worldwide.

JASON: Oh, yeah. They're the good guys. They're not evil at all. It's everyone else that is.

PAT: Right.

JASON: But I don't think most people understand that. But there's some very interesting reasons why this evolution took place and why he is the way he is.

PAT: He really did golf an 18 one time.

GLENN: Oh, he was three.

PAT: Huh?

GLENN: He learned how to play golf at three.

PAT: Yeah. And he hit a hole in one on every hole.

GLENN: Yeah, but that was a little later. His first game, he did hit a hole in one. But he was a little older.

PAT: But not on every single hole.

GLENN: Yeah, not on every single hole until he was maybe eight.

JASON: But the most important thing, his dad invented the hamburger supposedly. He, of course, didn't call it that. He coined the very catchy name "double bread with meat," which didn't take hold out here. But I guess --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Much more descriptive though. I mean, double bread with meat is -- it's just plainly a better descriptive name. They nailed it.

JASON: It is, yeah. So there's a very real reason why this is not funny to them. And they've been preparing for war for 16 years.

GLENN: With the United States.

JASON: Specifically with the United States. And I think a lot of people don't realize, okay, this is not going to be another Iraq. This is not going to be an Afghanistan. We're going to war with a country that has been preparing for this day for 60 years.

GLENN: You believe we are going to war?

JASON: So this is the thing, it depends on this next nuclear test in North Korea, which analysts say is imminent. I think it could have happened days ago. I bet they wanted to do it on the anniversary of last week, but things probably happened that delayed it.

JEFFY: Good.

JASON: They just came out and said yesterday that they're going to continue to do tests. They will not be deterred. They're going to continue to do it. It depends on what this test is. And it depends on what our intelligence says it is. Now, if this test is for a miniaturized nuclear device that could be put on top of a missile --

GLENN: How do we know that? How will we know that?

JASON: That's a good question. Only the intelligence community will know.

GLENN: The -- and whether you believe the intelligence community. There was a really disturbing situation that happened at the White House yesterday. Some of the senators walked out, rolled their eyes and said, "Well, that was interesting." Apparently, it was a mess. But a senior Trump adviser has come out and said, "We know how to advise the president." And it will make your blood run cold. But it will explain an awful lot. If this senior Trump adviser -- this is not an anti-Trump person, this is a pro-Trump person. If they're accurately telling us what's happening in the White House, you better pray to God we have the right advisers around this president.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
